Information Systems at Karlstad Business School, welcomed a new teacher on the first of August. Gunnar Olsson, with a sterling background within the IT-business and a former Olympic medalist, has stepped into the academic world.
Gunnar Olsson is originally from Timrå, a place north of Sundsvall that has a strong athletic tradition, not least in ice hockey with the men’s A-team of Timrå IK in the Swedish hockey league, SHL. For Gunnar Olsson it was canoe instead.
- I was around 13 years old when the youth Swedish Championship in canoe took place in Timrå. I saw all the canoes and thought it was cool. The middle sister in the family started first, after that me and my younger sister joined the sports of canoe, says Gunnar.
